. barack obama the man has led a remarkable life. he excelled in school. he climbed to the ivy league and made editor of the harvard law review in a blind test that has nothing to do with affirmative action. nothing. he has led an unblemished life, has been a solid faithful husband, a loving caring father to his daughters. his political flaw is that he spends too many evenings with his family and not enough time caging and winning over the follow politicians. he's too much the stay at home husband. and what has been the judgment of the right wing? have they said a single word of good about this man and of his character? even though he in fact meets every known standard, conservative standard of what a good man should be. clean, faithful, hard working, committed to goals, responsible, and yes when it comes to dealing with the country's enemies overseas, resolute. the content of his character? 50 years later i ask has this president of our os been given that test or has he been judged by his critics as martin luther king hopes we would get passed by the color of his skin. i think every
obama has asked the defense department to prepare options for all contingencies. we have done that. and again, we are prepared to exercise whatever option, if he decides to employ one of those options. >> we have two reports on these new developments. nbc news's kristen welker and amaa reporter also. >>> what's the latest and what are the options being considered. >> reporter: the white house, you're absolutely right, saying there's little doubt that chemical weapons were being used by the assad regime. they're reacting to the fact that the syrian government will let u.n. inspectors into the alleged site of the chemical weapons attack. the white house expressing concern that it could be too little too late. they say that area has been shelled for five straight days. here's a statement from the administration, an administration official, that we just got this morning. this avenue says, quote, at this juncture, any belated decision by the regime to gran access would be considered to late to be credible including because the evidence available has been significantly corrupted as a res
president obama took the oath of office, hasn't it? he's a socialist, a communist, he's a marxist, we've heard it all. low information voters are buying this stuff. what's really bad about it all as we go into year six of president obama, now this white consecutive movement is starting to infiltrate into the legislative process in america and we sit here silent about it? i will not. this is dangerous for the country. and it needs to be directly addressed. governor dalrimble, own up, dude. do you want this stuff in your backyard in leaf, north dakota? is that the north dakota way? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. will conservatives have the character to condemn racism in america. text to 67622. go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. for more, let's turn to hillary shelten of the naacp and ohio state senator nina turner. >> mr. shelton, it has been 50 years since the march on washington. we all want to feel like we're moving forward. but when stories like this prop up, when i go to alabama and hear these comments, i thin
at columbus. and the author of "the price of ticket, barack obama and the rise and fall of politics." and eleanor norton, who was one of the organizers of the march. and she was there today. in the face of this collective wisdom on this subject i am going to bow in humility, and not presume anything. i would like to invite each of you to react to this day and to this day 50 years ago, beginning with eleanor holmes norton, the only one who was present at both. >> 50 years ago, we were trying to make sure that the president of the united states was with us. he was our ally, but he discouraged the march. to be sure, he was so moved by the march, that afterwards he embraced the march and introduced a bill that would later become the 1964 civil rights act. now, here we have three presidents. that in itself speaks to the success of the march. but this was a terrible challenge to present to the three living presidents. of the three, it seems to me that jimmy carter found his role and function, leaving aside the fact that he was the one that understood the irony of being in washington where
evidence and now, of course, what comes next, barack obama is now moving closer to military strike. "boston globe" also talking about a coming military strike. it looks like it's probably going to happen. let's get to news. >> top u.s. officials now say chemical weapons were used in da masses cas and the president is considering a limited military strike on select targets inside the country. yesterday u.n. inspectors visited the site of the attacks and though low expectations for what their probe will uncover, secretary of state john kerry says there is little doubt as to what happened there. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the contents of the world. p it defies any code of more reality. let me be clear. the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. the reported number of victims the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations, these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us, is real
as the nation's first black president spoke from the same spot dr. king did 50 years ago today. president obama paid tribute to the civil rights activist who's marched for change in the face of adversity. >> because they kept marching, america changed. because they marched the civil rights law was passed. because they marched a voting rights law was signed. because they marched doors of opportunity and education swung open so their daughters and sons could finally imagine a life for themselves beyond washing somebody else's laundry or shining somebody else's shoes. because they marched, city councils changed and state legislatures changed and congress changed and yes, eventually the white house changed. because they marched, america became more free and more fair. not just for african-americans but for women and latinos. asians and native americans. for catholics, jews and muslims, for gays, for americans with disabilities, america changed for you and for me. and the entire world drew strength from that example. >> president obama highlighted the remarkable progress our country has made because
to attack obama care because they want to hurt america. >>> a freshman, watch this, sinking an amazing half-court shot. that's only half the story. the other half of the story may be better. we'll tell you what his future will look like at that school. "fox & friends" begins right now. >>> good sunday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends," tucker carlson anna kooiman, clayton morris. >> good morning. >> we want to congratulate a new sports network. >> fox 1. >> find that on the cable dial. congratulations to them. they are kicking off. we wish them well. next year there will be fox sports 2. they will be two years old. >> i see. he'll be here all week, all morning for the next four hours nim. we have a fox news alert to get to. egypt braces for another day of bloody protest after security forces storm a mosque in cairo. protesters and armed men barricaded themselves inside. hundreds died in bloody street battles this week including the son of the muslim brotherhood spiritual leader. this as the egyptian government considered out laug the brotherhood just a month after it held pow
. it is a folly built on a fantasy that doing this is going to get the approval of the senate and barack obama. it is never going to happen. so you are going to shut down the government for no reason. yesterday mitt romney weighed in on it. >> the former presidential candidate told a group of donors that the plan led by conservatives would hurt national security. that doesn't make it easy for some republican lawmakers like north carolina congressman. >> this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? i want yes or no. no. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> this guy has probably voted to get rid of obama care 20 times. i mean, they take the vote every week. >> 40 times. >> they voted 40 times. so you now have this happening all over america. i said it the other day. i know there are stupid people on the internet and they have to do something. >> they don't like your pants. >> they are wandering the streets, going to get hit by cars or in mama's basement. rather than be in mama's basement writing stup
as president obama. >> yeah, joe. david cameron really shocked because it was defections within his own party that caused ta defeat and if president obama decides to take action against the assad regime it appears he will be doing so without the support of our two strongest european allies. after an eight-hour debate the british parliament voted to reject a limited strike against syria. >> why is it that our allies in the middle east like saudi emirates, qatar, kuwait and others, cannot take military action, why does it fall on us yet again? >> put simply, is it in britain's national interest to maintain an international taboo about the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield, my argument is question it is. >> i take a question from the scottish national party. >> does he know if there are any plans over the last few days for any military action before next week, planned at all against syria? >> i obviously can't discuss the details of potential action in detail in front of this house, but i can tell the house that american president and i have had discussions that have been reported in th
. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an
of a tweet. a false tweet which said that president obama had been injured. >> it all began about 1:07 this afternoon. with this tweet from "associated press." "breaking, two explosions in the white house, and barack obama is injured." the message went to "ap's" 1.9 million twitter followers and spread like a virus. re-tweeted almost 5,000 times within a minute. but it was a fake. "ap's "account had been hacked. >> it partly explains the unusual activity in the dow. >> the dow began plunging, and within three minutes, dropped more than 140 points. >> you looked around the floor. you saw people running. you saw people upset. not sure what was going on. just watching this market trade lower. >> automatic trading programs kicked in. >> human beings weren't making these trades. these were computers. algorithms designed to skim the headlines and find negative or positive words and help companies profit on the results. >> minutes after that first message "ap's" corporate account tweeted it was bogus and suspended the "ap's" twitter page. >> i can say the president is fine. i was just with

morning. >> reporter: the obama administration not only strongly condemning the violence but calling for restraint and calling for the interim government to respect the rights of the people there. josh earnest saying that the u.s. will continue to hold the egyptian government accountable for the promise they made to speed up the transition to a democratical democratically elected government. but what's missing in all of this is what then? we do know there have been a lot of conversations between u.s. egyptian officials. but still more than a billion dollars in aid continues to flow from the united states to egypt. the white house saying that that aid is under review. one other point is that the white house still will not call what happened in egypt a cue. officials saying it's been determined that it's not in the best interest of united states to do so. a lot of tough talk from the obama administration, but no concrete steps on what will happen next. in the meantime, the president continues on his vacation here on martha's vineyard. no word on whether we'll hear from him in the comin

home celebrating the election of barack obama. and people in the room started to cry, and someone said to me, professor jones, did you think you live long enough to see an african-american elected president? i said no. but excuse me, my tears are not for the election of barack obama's president. my tears are for all of those persons that i personally knew, personally knew -- i called them wintertime soldiers, who made his election possible. and the president today and even earlier, he reflected that in the very poignant and moving speech. i thought he gave an exceptionally good speech today. it was balanced, it was right on the money, and near the end i could hear his moving over to be like a baptist preacher, i knew he had more sense than to completely go there. it was a beautiful speech. it was balanced. and as some of your guests have said, i heard on -- i don't know whether it was your show but the chris hayes show, is that we're realists. the dream substantially has been realized, john lewis said, anybody would have to be blind, deaf and not recognized in 50 years, there are no si
bit of what president obama had to say on those steps. just about 30 minutes ago. let's play a part of the president's remarks today. >> to suggest as some sometimes do that little has changed, that dishonor is the courage and the sacrifice of those who paid the price to march in those years. >> chris, your perspective on that remark in the president's speech today, as well. >> well, you know, this is an example, and this sound partisan, to hell with it. that's the speech the president gave today is an example of why there's no credibility to his right wing critics. is he a moderate. he is a pro american guy, a patriotic guy who preaches over and over again unity among the various groups in this country. he never preaches division. he always prepares progress and getting along together. and people taking responsibility for their own lives. today he sounded a bit like bill cosby in that regard. get your act toogether. is he everything a white conservative should applaud how he educated himself and stayed clean as a whistle and raise this had beautiful family and did everything great
clinton. senator elizabeth warren and president obama round out the top four. governor christie's position dips when only republicans are polled, drops to eighth behind the list of candidates behind the party's presidential nomination in 2016. first thing is first, what on earth is a temperature meter or whatever we're calling this? >> yes. so they call this the feeling thermometer. we're into feelings and we ask you how do you feel about these politicians. so 0 is stone cold. 100 is burning up. and we saw there the president coming in fourth. the most surprising number in that poll, you mentioned senator elizabeth warren, now the senior senator from massachusetts, coming in at number 3. the other thing that really struck us, how far christie fell when you ask just republicans, interestingly enough number one, when you ask just republicans, paul ryan, mitt romney's running mate and then rand paul, ted cruz, jeb bush, scott walker of wisconsin, all coming in before christie. that points to the governor's real challenge. he has this amazing national popularity and following, on the cover of
we're out there willy-nilly. >> reporter: that was president obama just days ago assuring the american public that the national security agency was not breaching the trust of its citizens. but a new report out today by "the washington post" may raise new concerns. after combing through the trove of documents leaked by former nsa analyst edward snowden "the post" reports the nsa has broken privacy rules thousands of times each year since 2008. "the post" says most of the incidents involved surveillance of americans and foreign intelligence targets on u.s. soil in ways that violate the program's rules. of those incidents, "the post" report most were unintended and many involved failures of due diligence or violations of standard operating procedure such as when an area code mixup caused the nsa to intercept a large number of calls from wrau washington, d.c., instead of egypt. the nsa response was quick. overnight the nsa released a statement, "nsa's foreign intelligence surveillance activities are continually audited and overseen internally and externally. when nsa makes a m
that was an interesting comment. obama canceled his meeting with vladimir putin right after the appearance with the jay leno with tub long list of topics including average snowden being granted asylum. >> i was disappointed because even though we don't have the extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect is there is a lawbreaker or alleged lawbreaker in their country we evaluate and try to work with them. they did not do that with us. and in some ways it is reflective of the underlying challenges we have had with russia lately. lori: des prez incumbents and a recent summit he had. >> you look at me with the nbc executive. what is going on? [laughter] that was a news making interview. >> i am not sure that was his place to do that. >> aol has agreed to buy a 405 million cash and stock it was bigger than the a will purchase of the huffington post. c02m armstrong says it will help to integrate advertising with video content. the deal will close in september. the week-long furlough has been announced with the technology group starting augus. they will receive one-third of pay while
. we know that the regime maintains -- large scale. we know that the barak obama maintains use of chemical weapons in syria and uses the rockets that were use today to deliver chemical weapons on august 21st. the opposition does not. we also know that the opposition does not have the capabilities that the syrian regime has. and as i mentioned earlier, we have already had an assessment by the intelligence community with a high degree of confidence that the syrian regime has used on a smaller scale, chemical weapons, in this conflict already. so suggestions that there's any doubt about who's responsible for this are as preposterous as suggestions that the attack itself didn't occur. >> jay carney there making it very clear that they have no doubt and previewing the intelligence assessment that will be declassified sometimes we believe later this week. jerry lee bash served as chief of staff to former secretary of defense and cia director leon panetta in both posts and joins us now. let's go over what the mission is. take us behind the scenes in the war room, we're at the pentagon
if we go this crazy george w. bush barack obama way which is printing money and overspending and raising taxes or if we will go pro-growth like reagan and if we go the pro-growth agenda i think markets will go up. really way up. dennis: plenty of time to follow over the next few years and in the meantime find one of these hundred dollar bills for you. dennis: how much would you pay for that? >> thanks a lot. dagen: $50 bills are bad luck. in racing in particular. not so much. dagen: coca-cola, artificial sweeteners, and diet drinks in a new ad campaign. dennis: diane macedo has more today. >> i will take any $50 bills, not a problem at all. >> the company is out with defending the use of s like diet drinks, and quality product you can feel good about along side a photo of a smiling woman, and a compound -- emphasizes despite being a trusted brand from 27 years, and doing things like offering low-calorie or no calorie options. and questions about artificial sweeteners calling them, quote, high quality alternatives to sugar and pointing out the safety came as supported and by 200 studies o
notes, you said a missile attack would only make president obama look weaker. why? >> if it's just a missile attack to signal open session to chemical weapons and assad goes ahead with future chemical weapons attacks, then that makes the u.s. look irrelevant. so it has to be strong enough to deter a future use, strong enough to send a signal not only to damascus but to iran that red lines, once they're made and, you know, we can discuss the wisdom of making a red line before you no ewhat you will do to enforce it, but once the red lean is out there, it's important not only in terms of the syrian crisis but in terms of the looming iran nuclear standoff. >> so what are you advocating exactly then? if missiles are not going to be strong enough, what would be? >> i think it has to be, well, the administration has boxed itself in on this attack. but this attack only makes sense if it's a part of a broader strategy to act sell rate the fall of assad, to strengthen moderate opposition groups within the opposition coalition, because it doesn't make sense to overthrow assad if al qaeda affi

believe chemical weapons were used in the syrian battlefield. this the obama administration saying causing a shift in u.s. policy towards arming the rebels. the mission for the team is not to establish who used chemical weapons but rather if they were used at all. >>> to russia where two champion sprinters apparently make a big statement by exchanging a kiss on the victory podium. >> reporte >> reporter: was it a kiss or a protest. two female russian athletes sharing a lengthy embrace on the podium over the weekend raising concerns they could be prosecuting for promoting what russia calls nontraditional sexual relations. neither athlete has yet issued a statement on the matter. >> thank you so much. >>> and they are starting to mismantle a mountain top get away that is making up the penthouse suite of a high rise in beijing. >> reporter: i want to show you the great lengths that the media here is covering the story. they have taken a drone and flown it above this enormous structure in beijing. these amazing pictures of this pretty extraordinary structure built by a chinese tralsh medicine
been a little more skeptical. i think the long-term is more important to president obama. who is the best person to be there if we lapse back into an economical phone. hh does not want a big international crisis. we want the city growth at home. that is what he is worried about here. tracy: who is that person then? is a decision he will have to make. maybe he thinks that larry summers is the guy. we will have to wait and see, obviously. he is making sure that the larry tracy: i bet you cannot believe how much time we are putting into the discussion of the next fed chair. >> it is always a big decision. i remember when president reagan picked alan greenspan for this job. there was always a lot of attention around it. it is a big choice. what is unusual is you have a lot of people from the air outside. tracy: thank you, sir. ashley: do you think your e-mail is private? if you use google's gmail service, you should not think that. gerri willis joins us with details like the company is making that disclaimer now. gerri: anything in your e-mail is subject to scrutiny. i think this
moved behind the scenes to quash the campaign and are insisting that obama not be pressured as he mulls to nominate. >> the president does not like people trashing those he is seriously considering for big jobs. he plainly likes larry summers. there has been a campaign against summers within the senate. you had a significant block of senate democrats who were signing their names to a letter, essentially endorsing yellen. democratic senators have publicly raised questions about whether larry summers would fit in that job. and the president doesn't like being hemmed in. we have seen this at his press conferences. saw it when he went to the hill and talked to democrats and defended pretty forcefully larry summers as somebody who had helped him a good bit, who has a lot to offer. he has been -- summers has been believed to be the front-runner for the job. don't know to what extent that is still the case. but the president doesn't like to be dictated in these sort of scolded his democratic colleagues. >> we have been looking at this, this opposition in the senate and other places that have b
